An upbeat guy-Spencer Tracy

Spencer Tracy almost always plays an upbeat guy even when faced with adverse conditions. Catch him in John Ford’s The Last Hurrah (1958) where he stands up for his friends and makes losing an election look like a victory. He also eventually makes the town in The Bad Day at Black Rock (1954) on TCM 8/11/16 see a better day and brings happy tears to Katharine Hepburn’s eyes at the end of his last movie Guess Who is Coming to Dinner (1967) as he brings an upbeat resolution to a family crisis.
